The plan

The map above shows the trajectory we plan to send the glider in its way from Massachusetts to New Jersey. If all goes well, the glider will follow the black line. It is schedule to fly for over 500 km, what will take about 25 days. The blue lines are some of the ship lanes the glider will have to cross in its way. When crossing the ship lanes, the glider with fly between the bottom and 20 m below the surface. The red dots indicate the location of Eric Powell’s fisheries cruise transect in the Hudson Canyon area.
